R-134a has become the standard refrigerant choice for household appliances, small self contained refrigeration units, large chillers, and automotive air conditioning. R-134a is also a common blending component. Requires POE lubricant to be used in the compressor.
R-134a is the global standard for new mobile air conditioning and can be utilized to retrofit existing R-12 mobile air conditioning systems. Other uses include plastic foam blowing (as a cleaning solvent), a propellant for the delivery of pharmaceuticals, wine cork removers, gas dusters and in air driers for removing the moisture from compressed air.

A refrigerant is a substance or mixture, usually a fluid, used in a heat pump and refrigeration cycle. In most cycles it undergoes phase transitions from a liquid to a gas and back again. Many working fluids have been used for such purposes.
The color guideline is not a substitute for reading cylinder labels and markings.
Refrigerant is a tasteless, mostly odorless gas. When it is deeply inhaled, it can cut off vital oxygen to your cells and lungs. Limited exposure — for example, a spill on your skin or breathing near an open container — is only mildly harmful. However, you should try to avoid all contact with these types of chemicals.
To remove chlorine from the refrigerant, manufacturers created another set of refrigerants called HFCs (or Hydro Fluro Carbons). Although they also have the potential for global warming, but still they are better than HCFCs as they do not deplete the ozone layer. The most common HFC used in air conditioners is R-410A.
Widely used in many air conditioning and refrigeration systems globally.
It is a hydro-fluorocarbon (HFC) that does not contribute to ozone depletion; also the first non-ozone-depleting fluorocarbon refrigerant to be commercialized.
